Kids today are playing sports at an earlier age. They need a routine of structured-skills training sessions that will develop them properly. This program uses sport-specific skills training and body-weight workouts to teach fundamentals, improve the athlete's technique, and develop their self-esteem. To sign up, contact Jeffery Johnson.


Youth Sports

Getting your child involved in recreational sports such as soccer, flag football, basketball, or baseball is one of the BEST ways to make new friends, use up excess energy (that’s for you parents), and get started on a path to a happier, healthier life for the body and mind.

***SPRING SOCCER: Scott McClain from ESCRA has postponed the league until after Easter.***



Thursdays, March 26–April 30 (see above), 6:00–7:30 p.m., E144 | $60 (6 classes) | For ages 48+
With our art program, we walk our senior adult participants through a six-week drawing and painting series that focuses on our relationship with God. Each week highlights a different form of art as it illustrates the different forms we, as humanity,  have taken since our creation. The progressive narrative for the class illustrates mankind’s creation, the separation from God, mankind’s usage of art to express our soul and need for God, and our extravagant reconnection to God.

In this program, each participant will:

  • Learn the basic principles of art and design.
  • Use art creation as a tool for discipleship.
  • Learn to communicate through photography, drawing, and painting.
  • Experience on a deeper level God’s connection to us by creating works of art.
  • Create art in a judgement free space with like-minded individuals.
  • Use art as self-expression and connection to others.
  • And so much more…
